Another Monday, another weekend recap. Not too much to recap today though, not a very eventful weekend. I’m starting to like these weekends where I don’t really do anything. Friday night after I finished up on a few client’s sites, I decided that I wanted to go to the casino again, but this time we went to a different one, (we have 3 nearby). What a lucky night to hit the casino! Amanda said that she wasn’t feeling lucky that day, so she didn’t really want to go, but of course I convinced her to go, good thing I did.
Once we got there, we split up like we do for a while so she can play the machine that she likes and I can play the ones that I like. After I lost some money, I went over to find her and she was up almost $200! I walked away because I didn’t want to bring any bad luck. Later that night, we were going to play just $20 more, that’s it, then we were leaving. Down to $11 I hit a big win, $350. It sounds good to win $350, but I was actually quite upset because I was one wild away from winning $2,500! There was 15 spots on the screen and 14 had wilds, I was quite upset that I didn’t get the last one, but beggars can’t be choosers right? I guess it’s like having an A1C below 7, but wanting it lower, I’ll take it, but would like better.
I did have a really high blood sugar on Friday, for a while too. I had a bad site in the morning, because I was at 378 or so, I don’t remember exactly. I went home and changed my site, but 2 hours later I was at the same exact number! So, I had to change my site again, which irritated me because I only have like 3 sets left and my new supply order doesn’t come in for another week or so.
Saturday came and went by pretty fast. During the afternoon I went to the big parade in downtown Delray Beach. I absolutely HATE parades. They are fine for kids or if you have kids, but when you’re 25 years old, and there are huge St. Patty’s Day parties going on, a parade just isn’t my choice for fun. But, my girlfriend enjoys the parades, so guess where I was at? Saturday night I laid around the house and watched some tv and did some more work. I’m doing a full re-design on my company website, CSI Marketing Solutions, and it’s not quite done, so I am trying to finish it up as soon as possible, but with a lot of client work taking up my time, I’d rather spend my time doing that.
Sunday was yet another beautiful day in south Florida. It started out with a nice morning walk to Dunkin Donuts, which is about 0.5 miles from the house, so a quick mile walk to start the morning off. I hate sitting inside doing work when it is so beautiful out. Amanda and I went to Barnes and Noble to sit outside, but we ended up sitting out by Whole Foods because we wanted to grab some lunch. Let me explain this lunch that I had, and by the end of this, you will know why I can’t stand Whole Foods, hate the idea of the place, hate everything about it. I went to the $7.99/lb salad bar. I didn’t even make a large salad or put many fixings in it, but yet my salad, let me repeat, a SALAD, cost me $17.95! You wouldn’t even pay that much for a salad at a five-star restaurant. This is why I vowed several years ago to never step foot in a Whole Foods store ever again, unfortunately I did, but that will be the last.
This week is going to be pretty intense. I have several projects that all have deadlines at the end of this week, gotta love those deadlines. To add on to that, there is 3-4 Panthers games at home this week, so I will be attending all of them. I don’t have any doctors appointments this week, but I will be placing an order to get more testing strips. Can’t wait to spend that money!
Well have a great Monday and a great week. Do something today to improve your life and somebody else’s life, and then try it again the next day.
Overall, not a bad weekend for my blood sugars. Averaged probably around 160 for the weekend, which is better than what my last 3-4 months have bee, so I’ll take it. Slowly improving.
